As go the cycles of the year, we too move through our own seasons with Hattast-ique. There is a travel season, a home season and a slow season. We go with the flow and follow the path ahead of us. For we are all in this together.  The road stretches out for miles, as we leave the comfort of our home. We are off before the sun has risen, waiting for the warmth of the day after a chilled desert night. As it begins to rise, the sky is filled with bright, warm colors, filling our hearts with confidence that everything is going...

“I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort, where we overlap.” Building a Community Since the beginning of Hattast-ique, we have always had a strong sense of community.

October is here. There is a chill in the air. A change in the wind. The days are getting shorter. The sunsets are more vibrant.There's something strangely beautiful about this season. It reminds me how important it is allow changes to flow. I cannot stop a leaf from letting go of it's branch. I can only appreciate the act of life that it graciously expresses. From a bud to a flower in the spring, to the thriving green leafs that hang from the tree all summer, to an explosion of bright warm colors that cover the earth, as we slowly...
